Sexual health is a state of physical, mental, social and emotional well-being related to sexuality. This not only means the absence of sexually transmitted diseases but also having mutually beneficial relationships with both partners respecting one another, physical intimacy and safe sexual experiences free from coercion, discrimination and violence.
An individual’s sexual health and well-being can contribute to their overall health and well-being because they will be happier and have increased self-esteem and self-confidence. They will not suffer from sexual frustration and having somebody to talk to often relieves stress. And, of course, being in a strong relationship provides emotional stability to an individual’s life.
